The Aberdeen IronBirds (Short Season A; NY-Penn League) have appointed a new General Manager, naming Jack Graham to the position. Graham will oversee the front office and game day operations, lead all ticket sales efforts and continue to engage with the local Harford County community.
“From playing with the IronBirds in 2013 to building a front office career here in Aberdeen the past few seasons, I’ve gotten to know this ball club, community, and fan base extremely well. I couldn’t be more excited to continue our efforts to bring an exciting baseball atmosphere to some of the best fans in game,” said Graham. “We had a really successful season this year and we’re going to do everything we can to continue to build on that success, both on-and-off the field.”
As General Manager, Graham will manage the daily business operations of the team and facility at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium. Additionally, he will be responsible for developing and maintaining a strong and engaging relationship with the local community, while creating additional revenue streams that support the organization.
Graham spent the last three seasons with the IronBirds in the role of Assistant General Manager of Operations, overseeing gameday operations, staff management, event coordination, promotion procurement and vendor management. Prior to his work with the IronBirds, Graham was an Amateur Baseball Account Representative for Ripken Baseball, that provides elite on-site tournaments, camps and clinics hosted at state-of-the-art baseball and softball facilities in Aberdeen, Maryland; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Graham was selected by the Orioles in the 38th round of the 2012 MLB Draft and spent three years in the Orioles minor leagues as a catcher. He was a member of the 2013 McNamara Division Champion IronBirds playing alongside Trey Mancini, Mike Yastrzemski, Hunter Harvey, and Chance Sisco. Graham was awarded the Mountaire Outstanding Community Service Award in 2014 for his dedication to the community while playing with the Delmarva Shorebirds.
